For the first time ever World Water Week included a fashion show! Why? Because we at STWI decided to host a Re:think, Re:make, Re:use Showcase this year, where our member brands could present the way they work with sustainable fashion! Filippa K, Indiska, LINDEX, Kappahl, Ellos, Haglöfs, MQ, Stadium, Odd Molly, K&US, Rudholm & Haak presented different ways of production, new methods of dying and better ways of taking care of garments.
Sigrid Barnekow from Mistra Future Fashion was facilitating the discussion and the event gathered around 100 people – from companies to sustainability experts and students. At the end of the Showcase the audience had the opportunity to mingle with the brand representatives and ask questions. There were positive comments about the event not only from the audience, but also from the brands who inspired each other and shared thoughts on how to make the fashion industry more sustainable.
“We are very happy with the showcase!” says Maria Elfors from Indiska. “It was well organised and it was interesting to see how other brands work with sustainability!”
“It was fun to participate and it was very well organised!”, added Anna-Karin Dahlberg from LINDEX.
